Power of 'The Force Unleashed'

Fun fact: part of the reasoning behind my gamertag (F0RCEFL0W) was so I'd look cool playing "Star Wars" games online. Haven't had much of an occasion for that, so I'm left with a cool and mysterious name that implies either "The Force Flows", "Forceful rapping technique", or "Heavy urination/menstruation".

"The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition" was a Christmas present from my brother. It came in a classy tin with two discs and art prints. Real classy stuff. Disc one contains the original game, while disc two holds the bonus levels and downloadable content. This is pretty much everything ever released for TFU for only $30. Impressive... most impressive.

Fresh coat of paint

You'll notice a few changes to the 'ol Game Brain blog. I've got a spiffy new header. Note the x-ray controller inside the skull; it's taken from a real x-ray picture of an Xbox 360 controller. Is there anything the Internet can't do?

Wrecklaimer and I are working on some user-friendly layout and features. I've figured out how to insert a "Read More" link to cut down on super-long posts. Contact information will be more readily accessible. The navigation bar at the top will finally have some more working links.

Long overdue improvements, to be sure. My goal is to attract at least one random Internet person to become a follower of the site. I've run out of friends to bug into doing it. Expect for Mike and Rob, you guys still haven't followed yet! New Years Resolution for the both of you.

Grabbin' Beers

Normally, I try to keep things 'round jere clean and Web-friendly.

Well, not today. You've been warned.

Today, after my final exams, I'm going home. Then, I'm going to take a nap. Then, I'm going to start drinking. Then, I'm going to play some Left 4 Dead 2 'til my thumbs won't move anymore. Then I'm going to get laid.

One of the above comments is false (hint: it involves coitus).

I have a whole case of Miller High Life and a strong desire to feed the needy. With lead. And by needy, I mean uppity zombies in need of an asswhoopin'.

I'll see ya tonight on L4D2 on Xbox Live. If I don't doze off again after drinking...

Last fall column

Sniff. Last post of the semester.

There's an interview I'll be working on over break, so I hope to deliver it in January.

Snow days are perfect for playing video games. Or studying for finals and writing term papers.

Singing Gay Tony's Ballad

With a brand new Xbox 360 at my disposal, I've finally gotten around to playing "GTA IV: The Ballad of Gay Tony," the latest piece of episodic content from Rockstar.

The Red Death Strikes!

Here it is, the second-to-last column before holiday break. Enjoy!
